There are a variety of environmental impacts, particularly non-market related, that are still considered to be non-quantifiable and, therefore, excluded from the decision making process in many developing countries. This paper discusses the importance of incorporating these impacts into the policy-making process. Using the case of Bangladesh, it demonstrates how a failure to properly account for environmental impacts has resulted in decisions that have had negative implications for the environment and society.
